Once all was said and done (see below), my truck has been running for a cumulative 5 hours with no issues! Purchased the Auto Enginuity +Ford Enhanced Act. When I first scanned (basically playing so I would know how to use software), I found that my IPC was fine, 560ish at warmed up idle and all other pertinent things to monitor looked good. Had drivetrain codes, but didn't have any engine codes that would be causing my "crank, no start, start, no run for long, then repeat". Cleared codes and changed my oil filter cap from the NAPA back to the FOMOCO stuff and installed the "blue spring" kit while there. Would not start after these two changes (keep in mind it had been running the night before while I scanned). So, I removed the FOMOCO stuff and put the NAPA back, still no start. Was about to removed spring kit, but decided I would removed fuel filter cap and see if there was any fuel. No fuel what so ever in the bowl. I loosened fuel inlet line and turned key on for fuel pump to bleed line and I wasn't getting any fuel. Checked the fuel pump while son turned key on, didn't feel or hear anything. Didn't have any voltage at the plug. Had a blown fuel pump fuse. Replaced fuse and truck started and ran great. Scanned again and had P0230 for fuel voltage issue, but that was it. Cleared and idled for a little bit in driveway, then drove around with scanner just "monitoring" things. All looked well. Took laptop home, shutdown/re-start X3 then drove around for about 1.5 hours without issue. So, not really sure what fixed my original issue. But I think maybe I had a combination of oil leaks in the system and possible low fuel pressure. Will drive around for trhe next two weeks to see IF I'm good to go. Thanks for everyone's past information. This is the best library ever. I can remember WAY back in the 70's using big thick manuals to R&R items or rebuild engines. If you didn't have some clue how to do general "suck squeeze bang blow" troubleshooting, then you couldn't fix things. Wow, have we ever come far!!!!!
